Portuguese coastal route
I have some time off work, and the current heat wave here in Iberia is supposed to break tomorrow, so I'm going to put my Brompton on a bus tomorrow night at about 11:30 and head for Setúbal, Portugal, and then ride down the coast to Lagos, where I'll take the slow but bike-friendly train over to Vila Real de Santo António and the Spanish frontier.
Have any of you ridden along that part of the Portuguese coast? I've done it several times. It's just lovely, no big cities to speak of, really, mostly small towns and villages, lovely beaches, delicious food and, above all, friendly people.
I'm surprised that I almost never run into any other touring cyclists over there. If any of you've been and have suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
